Cassie's Story

Cassie is a masters of social work student at Indiana University School of Social Work, a group facilitator for a transgender support group, and momma to three loving cats (Cinnamon, Fennel, and Dusty) and a dog that is a cutie (Pepper).

Cassie doesn't limit herself in her reading, but finds herself drawn to reading a good ole mystery book! She knows though that anything could be potentially a favorite read. She also enjoys books with a social justice slant to them, which makes her partial to books like "Push" by Sapphire and "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood.

She grew up reading comic books because of her father, so she continues to read them to this day. Her favorite publisher is by far DC Comics. Her favorite comic book superhero will always be Donna Troy!

Cassie's Pet Family

Cassie loves animals a lot, so these are her pet family!

Cinnamon was our first cat. He came from a local shelter. He enjoys sleeping, eating, and being demanding on getting his daily pets in. 

Fennel was our second cat. He was dropped off as a kitten at my partner's parents farm house. He has been with us for about 2 years now.

Smoke was the local neighborhood cat, but when we moved into our new house he came with us. He is now an indoor cat. He is loving his new posh lifestyle of freedom running around the house.

Pepper was a our first dog. He was a shelter dog that my partner picked out. He likes to sleep the most. He is petrified of loud noises, so he gets babied a lot.

Gracie is our most recent addition to the house. She is an old gal. She is sweet and loveable. She has a few issues, like one of her legs causes her some issues. Overall though Gracie fits right in with the rest of her pet family. She is very much loved!
